#MyMassTakeaway: Palm Sunday – who you are. . Humility is knowing who you are before God. . In the first reading, Isaiah says "The Lord has given me a well trained tongue." He recognizes the talents the Lord has given him, and he strives to use them for the good of others. . In the second reading, we hear that Jesus is God, but He doesn't "grasp at" equality with God. This reminds us of Adam and Eve, who wanted to be like gods, who grasped at equality with God. They let their pride take over. . In the Gospel, Jesus gets asked twice about who He is. The questioners don't really believe His answers. They're not looking for truth, but trying to catch Him in pride. . Are you the Christ? I am. From anyone else, those two small words would be blasphemy. But Jesus humbly proclaims His identity. . Are you the king of the Jews? You said it. Jesus is not going to deny it. He embraces who He is and why He came into this world. . Humility leads us to proclaim who we are. In truth, we don't deny God's blessings. We proclaim the good attributes He's blessed us with, and we seek to give Him all the glory. We don't play up our gifts in pride, and we don't grasp for more than God has given us. . What gifts has God given you? Proclaim them, without shame, in all humility. And reflect on how you can give those gifts back to God and use them for His glory. . #mysundaybest with @rosiehill425 -Legend's first Mass!
